Children between the ages of 5 and 18 who live within the legal limits of Montgomery County are eligible to attend Montgomery County Public Schools. Children must reach the age of 5 on or before September 30 of the start of a new school year to enroll in kindergarden. Students with birthdays on October 1 or after must wait until the following school year.
Enrollment forms are available on the Forms & Notifications section of the MCPS website.
Parents may determine their child's enrollment zone by using the Montgomery County iGIS online service. Additional information about this service is available on the Transportation webpage.
Currently MCPS does not accept transfer requests for students who live outside of the legal limits of Montgomery County unless the child's parent or guardian works for the school division. Division employees may access the out-of-zone attendance application under Staff Resources.
